Don't fall for the fake positive reviews. Read them carefully, they are clearly not written by real patients. A dozen positive reviews posted one day? Not likely. A good doctor does not need to post fake reviews.

I had a really great experience at your office. Everyone at the office is so lovely – it almost seems like it’s a prerequisite to have a bubbly fun personality to work there I’m recovering well, just a little swollen. Thank you. Cheers

Dr. Naficy is always so willing to spend time explaining things and giving positive reassurance as to the healing process. All of the staff have been nothing but kind and gentle and fun to talk with. What a surprise yesterday it was to receive the big box of See's Lollipops.

The experience was wonderful with Sharon. I can't say enough about Sharon's bedside manner & the sweet way in which she coached me through my first time with fillers and Botox. Thank you for offering your assistance. Again. My experience with Sharon was wonderful.
in Atlanta, GA |
Well, I just have to say the Erin is amazing. She was so nice and patient, and best of all, made me feel relaxed. Please let her know how much I love what she did. I do have a little swelling (looks almost like a little bug bite) on my upper cheek area. I may have her look at it. But I’m so glad we did what she recommended. She’s awesome.

Sharon was great! I really appreciated that she was willing to answer all of my questions and she did a great job of talking me through her recommendation, based on my desired results. She made me feel at ease on my first visit and I will definitely be back to see her again.
in Sydney, NSW |
Just wanted to let you know that I am very pleased with Sharon Wells and glad that I did the research to find her. I have seen her 3 times over the last several weeks and feel that we accomplished what I set out to and a bit more. Sharon even resolved an issue I was having that my dermatologist said I just had to accept!

My appointment with Erin was wonderful and I am very happy with my results. I am planning on coming back for another set of fillers per her advice.

I am excited to have met Erin. She is knowledgeable, enthusiastic and did not make me at all feel like she was trying to sell me services. It is obvious that she loves what she does and wants the best for her clients. The office is beautiful and the front desk staff was so friendly.

Bellevue, WA |
I had a problem with the profile of my nose, it stuck out a little more than what I wanted. It also had a slight bump on the bridge. Otherwise my nose was fine and I didn't want to look too different. Dr. Naficy did a great job reducing the projection of my nose without changing too much else. I love the results. He also corrected the slight deviation inside my nose. Breathing is a little better and my headaches have gone down dramatically.
Seattle, WA |
I had two failed rhinoplasties done in CA by a doctor who never fixed the original problem of a bump on my nose. By the time I healed from the second one, I had an additional bump, my nose was too skinny causing me to be unable to breathe clear, it drooped and was asymmetrical. I was very nervous about trying to get it fixed again due to my previous experiences. Dr. Naficy was simply fantastic. The results are perfect. I couldn't be happier.
in Jacksonville, FL |
My experience with Zeltiq was a good one. The treatment was subtle but helped make my clothes look and feel better on my body. I would recommend this treatment to anyone looking non surgical results.
in San Francisco, CA |
A beautifully & well-appointed office with knowledgeable staff greet you. Very professional throughout in manner, approach, explanation & follow-up. Outstanding customer service. The procedure was a total success. Very impressive experience.
in Seattle, WA |
Words cannot describe how happy I am. Dr. Naficy listened to all my concerns and addressed every one of them. He has finally given me the face I have wanted for the past 18 years and for that I am so, so grateful. Even if the procedure had been painful, stressful and difficult, I would *still* repeat it for the results he gave me. Fortunately though, it was the easiest procedure imaginable thanks to him and his talented staff. I have had harder times grocery shopping.
in Seattle, WA |
I had a full face, neck, and brow lift with Dr. Naficy. He is such a skilled surgeon. My face & neck are much more youthful-looking, and his work was so natural that not a single person even suspected that I had work done. I don't look like my face is stuck in a wind tunnel - I look like myself, but without the sagginess. My scars healed beautifully. I couldn't be happier.
in Seattle, WA |
It took me a long time to save up for my cosmetic procedure. So, when I decided to have my surgery, I did a lot of research to see who was considered the best plastic surgeon in my state. The minute I walked into Dr. Naficy's office, I was impressed by the courtesy and attentiveness of his staff. I felt very comfortable with Dr. Naficy and was pleased with the clear way he answered my questions. Dr. Naficy and his staff took very good care of me on the day of my surgery and during the post-op
in Everett, WA |
Dr. Naficy is not only a gifted surgeon, him and his entire staff are so kind and caring. My recent face lift makes me look like ME - only from years ago. I look so natural. The healing process was not easy but it was worth it. Dr. Naficy was always kind to me and took his time to answer all my questions. His nurses and assistants make you feel like you are the only patient in the office. They took a scary and intimidating experience and made it such a positive one. Thank you!
in Seattle, WA |
I love Erin and she makes the pain of those darn needles much more bearable! I have had a wonderful experience at this office. Everyone was so lovely and I felt very welcomed.
in Seattle, WA |
Dr. Naficy performed an amazing Rhinoplasty and I am so thrilled with my results!! It took me years to gain the courage to have my nose done and I was so terrified. His staff and nurses are so kind and caring and Dr. Naficy spends time with you to listen to what you want - and helps make you less scared! I would recommend him in an instant to anyone - am beyond happy that I did this!!
in Seattle, WA |
Got lipo there on the same area for three times already. They are more concerned about "unselling" you then what is in your best interest. They also do this by trying to set a "follow up" surgeries ... however if the result is not what you have asked them to do... they still charge you for any additional adjustments... who's is unlikely most offices I have gone to. I spent over 10,000$ for the same area and it took three surgeries. Don't go there! It's a rip off!!
in Seattle, WA |
My first surgery made my nose twice as wide as before. Had another surgery to correct Dr. Naficy's doing (although still had to pay) and still horrible. Now it is too short piggish and narrow. Furthermore, I wasn't impressed with the level of care by Dr. Naficy and his office. It's like they didn't care once they had my money and never made an effort to follow up.
in Bellevue, WA |
I had an otoplasty with Dr Naficy a few months ago and unfortunately will get a revision elsewhere. Before surgery the tops of my ears stuck out and they were asymmetrical. After surgery I have a telephone deformity and continued asymmetry, one ear aches when I wear glasses and I have a protruding stitch behind one ear. It is a hard lump. Dr Naficy said it was a great improvement but for me it is not. I'm told the stitches are too close to the surface and need to be redone.
Bellevue, WA |
I came in with some issues of aging, and walked out with multiple cosmetic and functional issues. At this point I was abandoned and left to deal with the damage on my own. I have since sought out another doctor who is far more capable to help restore my beauty. I truly regret ever laying a foot in this office.
in Brookline, MA |
I had a revision rhinoplasty with Dr Naficy for a pollybeak deformity. My pollybeak was improved but he caused a host of issues. My nose is very asymmetric and crooked. The dorsal graft he placed on my bridge is off to the left and is visible. I have visible grafts in my tip as well. My tip is over-rotated which doesn't look good on me as I am a 6 foot tall male. He didn't have the decency to tell me he didn't have the skill to perform my revision surgery nor fix his mistakes.
Hollywood, FL |
Last year I made a rash decision to have surgery with Dr Naficy for what I believed to be a straight forward rhinoplasty. The result of my surgery is embarrassing. It is twice as wide as used to be, and is very overstortened. It's as though the tip begins between my eyes and tapers out into a wide triangle shape. It was swollen and fluctuating for about a year, due to all of the unnecessary work he did inside my nose. I now need an extensive revision using rib grafts. BEWARE!!!
in Seattle, WA |
Dr. Naficy is a gifted surgeon who is dedicated to providing a youthful but natural look to the face. Additionally, everyone who works for him is professional, knowledgeable, polite, and friendly. It is a very client-oriented medical practice. I particularly like the fact that Dr. Naficy does only faces - and he is truly a facial genius. I have had a number of procedures with Dr. Naficy & I wouldn't go anywhere else.
in Seattle, WA |
Best Rhinoplasty Ever!! This was the best decision I ever made. I have been going back and forth on my decision to have a rhinoplasty for years and I am so glad to have done it with dr naficy. The results are unbelievable and the whole process was smooth from start to finish. My nose looks exactly how I always wanted. Can't recommend him enough!!!!
in Bellevue, WA |
Amazing surgical hands. I was extremely impressed with his credentials and reviews. I believe I received the best care the minute I walked through the doors during my first visit through my last appointment. I highly recommend Dr. Naficy and his staff in Bellevue. I was very diligent in my search for a skilled Dr. with high credentials and reviews and he by far met all my expectations.
in Seattle, WA |
I landed on Sam Naficy and after visiting the clinic I knew I made the right choice. From the beginning they listened to all my concerns. They being the nurses and the surgeon himself. Everyone was so kind and you never felt like you were a business transaction but perhaps a very close relative. I'm not exaggerating, they make you feel so welcome and respected. Which was a huge load off my mind because I'm normally anxious. Today marks close to 7 months post op and my nose looks fantastic!!!!!!
in Seattle, WA |
Got rhinoplasty and septo pasty with Dr Naficy. Cosmetic results have been very transformative! Recovery wasn't too bad. After about the first week I was in a state that I could start working a few hours a day, and after 2 weeks I was back at work. I breathing has also improved quite a bit. Although its not perfectly solved, but is still much better than before. Kudos to Dr Naficy and his staff! Highly recommend if you can afford it.
in Bellevue, WA |
The office staff and doctor were absolutely amazing. I felt welcomed from the moment I walked in. They made my surgery day easy and kept my mom entertained while she waited. They provided all of the supplies and easy to follow instructions for post op care. I recommend using Dr. Naficy for procedures you are considering. My results are stunning!!!!
Mountlake Terrace, WA |
Dr Naficy is a revision rhinoplasty genius! He restored my breathing after my nose was destroyed by another surgeon. He and his staff are professional, compassionate and work hard to make sure your experience is a good one. Highly recommend.
in Bellevue, WA |
I had a very difficult revision rhinoplasty problem and was turned away by a few other surgeons due to complexities in my nose. Dr. Naficy did my revision surgery and used a rib to rebuild my nose. Although the result is still not a 100% my ideal nose it is a huge improvement over my old nose. I would recommend Naficy for revision rhinoplasty.
